Assault & Battery Charges

The Uniform Code of Military Justice defines assault as the use of force to cause physical harm to another individual. You may be charged with assault even if the action was only an attempt and did not result in injury. Aggravated assault may be charged if the alleged action involved a deadly weapon, or if it resulted in grievous harm.

Battery is defined as intentionally causing physical harm. Whereas assault only requires attempt, battery involves both an attempt and the successful conclusion of that attempt. Battery may be charged whether the harm was caused “directly” or “indirectly.”

A broad range of acts may be encompassed by the term “assault and battery,” including but not limited to the following:

  • Inappropriate touching
  • Physical abuse
  • Intimidation
  • Threats of physical harm
  • Threats of physical abuse
